How to Seal a Concrete Sink
FROM BUDDY RHODES STUDIO:
Does the concrete stain or is it waterproof?
The concrete is sealed making it water and stain resistant (spec sheets can be sent on request).
FROM COUNTERCAST DESIGNS:
How do you care for them?
Clean-up spills using a mild cleaner such as Simple Green, wiping daily. Wax weekly during the first month and then semi-annually. Avoid repeated or prolonged placement of objects over 300F. Buffing the surface regularly with a soft cloth will enhance the shine and increase the durability of the sealer. The use of bleach, harsh abrasives or caustic cleaners may be detrimental to the concrete. In drastic circumstances, concrete can always be re-colored, re-sealed, refinished or repaired.
FROM GROTTO DESIGNS:
What about sealers?
We use the best industrial sealers on the market today. The vast majority of our products are sealed with semi gloss, food safe, low VOC, water-borne urethane epoxies. They are very tough, compatible with concrete and highly resistant to scratching or staining. Under normal use this sealer may last up to ten years.
